If you have a basement, there is a chance that it’s some unutilized space that is dull and uninteresting, especially during winter.
But it doesn’t have to be so.
With simple insulation, your basement can become a desirable space that you’d love to spend time in. You can transform it into a private room or a home office. Some people prefer working in basements as they are isolated from other rooms and is free from noise. There are unending possibilities of what you can do with a comfortable basement.
If that excites you, here are some benefits that come along with simple insulation.
1. Save money on less heat loss
If you control the basement’s temperature, you will make it habitable all year long. Insulated basements block the airflow that can allow cool or warm air in by preventing hot air from escaping and having cold air penetrating the room. This saves the cost of heating up and cooling the unfinished basement. It is a good investment.
2. Make more money reselling your property
Statistics show a well-designed and finished basement gives up to 70%-75% return on initial investment value. That’s a great deal to an investor and for you if you’re thinking of selling that property someday.
Finishing your basement will create an entirely new and attractive look. You will attract more prospects, and buyers can pay more for an insulated basement.
3. Reuse of abandoned basement
Would you want to spend time and relax in a dark, cold, and abandoned basement? I know you wouldn’t. An insulated basement offers you an opportunity to reuse the basement and make a living space from it. Keeping the room warm and reducing moisture makes the room more habitable. You can repurpose it for other needs.
4. Lower the moisture levels
By nature, basements are located underground, and moisture levels are a major concern to most homeowners. Uninsulated basements provide the perfect breeding space for mould growth. Using the right insulation material with an in-built vapour barrier would keep the basement in good condition. You will be able to keep off a bad odour and mould from growing.
